She spent her entire afternoon looking for the ideal box of chocolates, and she found them: semi-sweet, coconut-filled ganache truffles, the sales associate even went as far as to say they were the best way to conquer a man's heart. The box itself cost her almost her entire monthly allowance, but she didn’t care because the following day was Valentine’s Day and her crush would be happy with her choice and her feelings. Impatient, she waited a full month for her crush's response on White Day. She straightened her hair, did her make up, and wore her favorite blue jasmine dress. She waited patiently for her crush to arrive and as the hours went by without a single text, she realized he wouldn't arrive on her doorstep. Her love was unrequited. The following month she wore black and headed to a local restaurant in downtown Seoul where she ordered the biggest bowl of jajangyeon and drowned her sorrows in the black colored bowl of noodles.
This holiday stems from Valentine's Day, where women give presents, usually chocolate to the men they like and from White Day, where men reciprocate with unexpected gifts. Black Day is celebrated by those who didn't receive anything on either day, so they spend their time enjoying the comforts of delicious food.
